3D Diode Characteristic

diodeex06.in : 3D Diode Characteristic

Requires: Device 3D
Minimum Versions: Atlas 5.28.1.R

This example demonstrates electrical simulation of a diode. It shows:

  • The formation of a 3D diode structure in Atlas
  • Forward bias simulation

The z.mesh statement is used in a similar manner to x.mesh and y.mesh to create a 3D structure using the Atlas syntax. Following this the REGION, ELECTRODE and DOPING statement each have Z related parameters that correspond with the X and Y parameters familiar from 2D simulation.

The syntax for setting material and model parameters and for biasing the device and saving results is identical to the previous 2D examples. Note that TonyPlot3d is required to plot the 3D mesh and solution files. TonyPlot is used for plotting the log files.
